Manali Leh Jeep Safari Tour

The Spiti Valley is formed by the Spiti River which rises at the Kubzum-La pass and descends into the mighty Sutlej River which is 150kms down stream. The scenery is awe inspiring and has unforgettable beauty. En-route, the river receives waters from many side valleys. These valleys are narrow except in places where the width can be up to 3km, thus limiting the cultivatable land. Small plantations of willow trees and poplars are grown near the Ki Monastery Spiti valley villages by the river to be used for house building in the local style. The hills are rich in herbs and rare medicinal plants which have been used in Tibetan Medicine for hundreds of years.

The Spiti Valley is a remote area high in the Himalayas situated on the Tibetan plateau with almost no rain and snow-covered for 8 months a year. Although originally Tibetan, it's been part of India since the mid 19th century and virtually closed off from the World for most of the last 50 years. For the population of 10,000 people, life is hard and physically tiring at an altitude of 12,000 feet, yet the people are warm hearted and generous by nature, with a strong sense of spirituality.
